chinese new year crafts

The girl’s teacher has invited me to talk to the children about CNY tomorrow. So, I have to prepare some materials for the “presentation”.

What is CNY without the Dragon? So, I made one this morning in just 45mins! Looking good, right? I’m so proud of myself! Hahaa… Chinese New Year dragon puppet craft
The girl is very happy with this craft. She was dancing to the music of CNY songs with the dragon! So cute! It definitely brings out the CNY mood!

A few days ago, the girl helped me to make some greeting cards for the red envelopes (Angbao). She helped to cut the pictures, apply glue, stick them on the blue construction papers and inserted them in the angbaos. We will be distributing these angbaos to the children at the end of the presentation. :)

Chinese New Year cards

Ah… CNY is just round the corner and I am feeling a bit stress out now because I haven’t even started cleaning the house, planning for the reunion dinner and making the pineapple tarts! The only thing we have done is to put up the CNY decorations all over the house and these are just some of them! πŸ˜› …

I is stressed ah…
